But when it came to the night’s biggest sartorial surprises — and putting this year’s fashion into the greater context of red carpet’s past — we turned to Project Runway‘s Nina Garcia.
We caught up with the fashion editrix at Weinstein’s post-show party, where she gave her two cents on this year’s Golden Globes’ fashion.
So how did the red carpet fashion at this year’s red carpet measure up to last year’s?
“Compared to last season, everybody went so much more glamorous this season,” Garcia gushed.
But what really caught Garcia’s eye were the accessories.
“The jewelry! It was so much about the jewelry,” Garcia raved.
Just one look at some of last night’s big style stars and it’s clear what Garcia was talking about: A pearl necklace made Zooey Deschanel‘s red Oscar de la Renta dress stand out from all the other crimson styles parading down the red carpet, and Olivia Munn’ssparkling necklace made her sleek Armani gown really sparkle.
“Sometimes the accessories can really seal [the look],” Garcia told us.
Though the creative director of Marie Claire was a huge fan of all the red carpet bling, she found the gowns equally as gorgeous.
